From Bean: The role of Serving in the Christian life; the Biblical command to serve (David)
This recent New York Times piece (http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/09/24/treating-homeless-people-like-criminals/?_php=true&_type=blogs&ref=opinion&_r=0) discusses the recent trend of local municipalities attempting to outlaw homelessness in what I would consider the worst way possible. Why isn’t the church more concerned with this sort of thing? How should the church respond, and how do The Gospel Friends feel about the homeless being treated in this manner?

@mygospelfriends Ep. 17, that constipated joke really blocked up the whole flow of the conversation…

@mygospelfriends Terrific! Thanks so much for the biblical faithfulness addressing a controversial (in some camps) issue.

@mygospelfriends On a scale of 1 to 10, your Southern Drawl Index (collectively) is about a 3-4. @FunkyStickman So, scientifically speaking, who would you say is the drawliest? @mygospelfriends Well…. would have to say David. Nick and Chase only draw out their R’s a little. O_o

@mygospelfriends Thanks for the shout out on the podcast. @mygospelfriends I really enjoyed this week’s episode. Probably . your best to date. BTW it’s not a drawl…it is an accent you guys do have.

@mygospelfriends If I could print out the picture in my mind of Chase at the beach, you would forever know him as Aquaman as I do.
